While Disneyland may have an entire ride based on the Indiana Jones franchise, Walt Disney World has an exciting and very unique stunt show involving the man himself.

The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular is an incredible and exciting show that places Guests right into the Indiana Jones film series as well as a real-life Hollywood set, letting audiences participate in film production.

The show is amazing and showcases the talent of all the cast and crew. However, with this being a live show involving very real and dangerous stunts, sometimes things don’t always go to plan.

In a video shared to TikTok, you can watch as the performer playing Indy is left speechless following a malfunction with the infamous boulder:

This is the first time I’ve seen this show go wrong. The giant boulder is supposed to come out right after the doors open, but fails on the first take. You can see the actor’s confusion. The second clip is how it’s supposed to go

This is the first time I’ve seen this show go wrong. The giant boulder is supposed to come out right after the doors open, but fails on the first take. You can see the actor’s confusion. The second clip is how it’s supposed to go. #indianajones #henryindianajones #indianajonesepicstuntspectacular #disney #disneyworld #waltdisneyworld #wdw #hollywoodstudios #orlando #centralflorida #fy #fyp #fypage #foru #foryou #foryoupage #foryourpage #forupage #foryoupageofficiall #foruyou #fyppppp #fypagetiktok

As you can see, the boulder never makes it out of the giant doors and, thus, leaves Indy standing there without a clue as to what;’s going on. Of course, these performers are trained to handle every situation, whether things go to plan or not.
Disney describes the show as follows:

An Action-Packed Show

Watch live as the daring duo dodges deadly traps, battles bad guys, leaps from tall buildings and makes thrilling escapes straight out of Raiders of the Lost Ark. The edge-of-your-seat suspense ends with a dynamite finale!

Along the way, get an inside look at how stunts are done with demonstrations that reveal how to safely throw and take punches, fall from tall buildings, and even wield whips in the midst of complex action sequences.

Have you ever witnessed a malfunction during this stunt show?
